As the client's development management partner you will take day to day responsibility for ensuring this scheme is delivered to their exacting standards.

You will report into the owners of our client and also the board for the project's client and will provide regular progress updates along with holding meetings with Directors, contractors, consultants and sub-contractors.

Salary for this role is circa £160k - £220k plus package.

Responsibilities:
- Ensuring all facets of the development are pulled together to ensure an effective delivery of the scheme.
